You read it this week or 6 months ago? Dated March 11. Amongst Rosenbaum's(who after reading through her other articles on the site, clearly is a huge proponent and supporter of SNAP) words I saw this, "The recent growth in SNAP spending is temporary. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) predicts that SNAP spending will fall as a share of Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in coming years as the economy recovers and the Recovery Act provisions end. SNAP is expected to return to 1995 levels as a share of GDP by 2019. Over the long term, SNAP is not growing faster than the overall economy and thus is not contributing to the nation’s long-term fiscal problems." When do these programs ever reduce their spending or size? I mean, does that ever even happen? I realize this is from the CBO, but that seems very unlikely. Especially recently, haven't all of these programs only grown significantly recently? This article reads like a brochure selling SNAP as opposed to an unbiased source carefully talking about the ups and downs of the program. The entire thing is just a sales pitch. The lady is seemingly qualified, but this thing is not encouraging as an unbiased piece of work.
